Expulsions, Suspensions, and Punishments
Preventing Unjust Punishments, Suspensions and Expulsions
Your child has a right to education within the Michigan public school system. However, this right may be taken away if they are found guilty of certain behaviors on school grounds, at a school-related activity or at an unrelated activity that negatively impacts the school environment.
Kirsch Daskas Law Group understands that your child may have been wrongly accused of an action or unreasonably punished. Our goal is to either have their punishment dismissed or penalties reduced to a more reasonable level. We will carefully examine the circumstances surrounding their case to protect your family’s best interests during school hearings. We can also appeal a school board’s unjust decision.
If your child faces a suspension or expulsion, call our Bloomfield Hills office at our office to schedule a consultation with our aggressive legal team. We will assert your rights and protect your child’s educational access to the full extent of the law.
Comprehensive Representation After Serious Accusations
After accusations of misconduct, a school principal may request a school board hearing for a suspension or expulsion. This may arise after a variety of situations, including:
- Possessing, consuming or selling drugs on school grounds
- Assaulting another student, teacher or school administrator
- Possessing or using a weapon
- Robbing another student, teacher or school administrator
- Perpetuating poor behavior after previous disciplinary actions
Our attorneys are accomplished criminal defense lawyers in Michigan. This experience provides the necessary experience and knowledge to confidently address serious charges. We can thoroughly investigate the situation and plan a strong defense to protect your child’s best interests. As capable trial attorneys, we transfer these skills to school hearings and clearly present your story in the best possible light.
Protection From Unduly Harsh Punishments
Even if your child is found guilty of perpetrating the act in question, they should not be unreasonably punished. Our firm will ensure that the school board takes all mitigating factors into consideration when determining repercussions. If the punishment is unduly harsh, we will appeal their decision. Our results-oriented lawyers will work closely with your family each step of the way to ensure that you understand the process, your rights and next steps.
